Hate, or Love?

Do you support forced "coexistence?"

Mandatory "inclusive diversity?"

Demanded integration instead of segregation?

Yours truly quite honestly likes to around certain persons... but only certain persons. Among those, he at least feels at ease with. They treat him OK, and he then treats them OK. They get along together - if not as real close friends, at least congenially as author and reader, cooperative business associates, admired church members, political patriotic comrades, responsive and friendly clerks and customer in stores, laws-abiding patient and non-tailgating, non-honking obedient drivers cruising alongside him on community roads and highways.

In stark contrast, this webpage author does not like nor feel comfortable with other persons often or occasionally within his proximity. He is uneasy when they are around, and - in fact - wishes that they would leave (as soon as possible), not return nor come back, and not be around him anymore - ever again, if possible. They believe and say and do things which are against his moral and religious beliefs and practices, and he deems them irritating hinderances and annoyances, dampening his endeavors, depressing his spirit, and stifling his happiness. Although he does not viciously despise, nor maliciously hate, nor desire to attack and destroy them himself, he certainly does not want to peacefully coexist with those who do not want to coexist peacefully with him, nor feel inclusive with the diversity of those who do not feel inclusive about his diversity, nor want to be required to be integrated with those who want to be segregated away from him.

It grieves me when a man is forced to marry someone who will not stop until that someone murders him - whenever and wherever and however, and whom he neither conditionally nor unconditionally loves. Or when a woman is forced to marry some cruel and ruthless tyrant who relentlessly and mercilessly screams at, spits and urinates on, hits, kicks, slaps, punches, bashes and smashes her repeatedly into quasi-consciousness during engagement, whom she neither conditionally nor unconditionally loves.

Scripture describes forgiving mandatory tolerance:

Leviticus 19:17 "You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason with your neighbor, lest you bear sin because of him."

Joshua 24:19 But Joshua said to the people, "You cannot serve the LORD; for He is a holy God; He is a jealous God; He will not forgive your transgressions or your sins."

Matthew 5:43 [paraphrase] You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' That holy-righteousness vengeance verse was OK so that you did not wimpishly and suicidally let your enemy destroy you, your dear wife, your precious kids, your sacred God-given religion, your entire Navy at Pearl Harbor -- but it also was wrong, being that that do-not-turn-the-other-cheek(s) Scripture verse does not belong in The Bible, because Leviticus 19:17 says so, which should be obvious,
5:44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, and especially pray for Satan and the demons and all who blaspheme the Holy Spirit and Name of the Lord and all those who perpetually and relentlessly hate Jesus and Christians and Christianity and do their damndest to obliterate it and you personally and police who would protect you,
5:45 so that you may be sons but not daughters of your Father and not Mother who is in Heaven; for He and not She makes His and not Her Sun, or sunlight regarding the Earth's axial rotation, rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the injust.
5:46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? At least you will be alive and not dead. Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
5:47 And if you salute only your brethren in some other way than the raised third finger, what more are you doing than others? Salute antisemitic Nazis and atheistic Communists and Jews-terrorizing Hezbollah and heads-chopping ISIS also. Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
5:48 You, therefore, must be "perfect" as previously defined, which includes the forced demands just mentioned in Matthew 5:43-47, as your heavenly Father is "perfect," and does the very same pertaining to Matthew 5:43-47. [end paraphrase].

Matthew 6:14 [paraphrase] For if you forgive men or women their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you;
Matthew 6:15 but if you do not forgive men [and Satan and the demons and impenitent sodomites and adulterers and assassinators and bank robbers and child molesters and rapists and those who blaspheme the Name of the Lord and particularly His Holy Spirit] their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. [end paraphrase]

First John 4:8 He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.

So let's see if God and His saints of the Bible "put their money where their mouth was" and did exactly that:

Leviticus 26:17 I [your unconditionally-loving God] will set my face against you, and you shall be smitten before your enemies; those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when none pursues you.

Deuteronomy 32:3 For I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Ascribe greatness to our God!
32:4 "The Rock: His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and right is He.
32:5 They have dealt corruptly against Him, they are no longer His children because of their blemish; they are a perverse and crooked generation.
32:6 Do you thus requite the LORD, you foolish and senseless people? Is not He your father, who created you, who made you and established you?
32:19 The LORD saw it, and spurned them, because of provocation from His sons and His daughters.
32:20 And He said, 'I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end will be, for they are a perverse generation, children in whom is no faithfulness.
32:21 They have stirred me to jealousy with what is no god; they have provoked me with their idols. So I will stir them to jealousy with those who are no people; I will provoke them with a foolish nation.
32:23 And I will heap evils upon them; I will spend my arrows upon them;
32:24 they shall be wasted with hunger, and devoured with burning heat and poisonous pestilence; and I will send the teeth of beasts against them, with venom of crawling things of the dust.
32:25 In the open the sword shall bereave, and in the chambers shall be terror, destroying both young man and virgin, the sucking child with the man of gray hairs.
32:26 I would have said, "I will scatter them afar, I will make the remembrance of them cease from among men,"
32:27 had I not feared provocation by the enemy, lest their adversaries should judge amiss, lest they should say, "Our hand is triumphant, the LORD has not wrought all this."'
32:28 For they are a nation void of counsel, and there is no understanding in them.
32:29 If they were wise, they would understand this, they would discern their latter end!
32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had given them up?
32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
32:35 Vengeance is mine, and recompense, for the time when their foot shall slip; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and their doom comes swiftly.
32:36 For the LORD will vindicate His people and have compassion on his servants, when He sees that their power is gone, and there is none remaining, bond or free.
32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and swear, As I live forever,
32:41 if I whet my glittering sword, and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries, and will requite those who hate me.
32:42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh -- with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the long-haired [i.e. mopheaded] heads of the enemy.'
32:43 Praise His people, you nations; for He avenges the blood of His servants, and takes vengeance on His adversaries, and makes expiation for the land of his people.
32:45 And when Moses had finished speaking all these words to all Israel,
32:46 he said to them, "Lay to heart all the words which I enjoin upon you this day, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law.
32:47 For it is no trifle for you, but it is your life, and thereby you shall live long in the land which you are going over the Jordan to possess."
32:48 And the LORD said to Moses that very day,
32:49 "Ascend this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, opposite Jericho; and view the land of Canaan, which I give to the people of Israel for a possession;
32:50 and die on the mountain which you ascend, and be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother died in Mount Hor and was gathered to his people;
32:51 because you broke faith with me in the midst of the people of Israel at the waters of Meribathkadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because you did not revere me as holy in the midst of the people of Israel.
32:52 For you shall see the land before you; but you shall not go there, into the land which I give to the people of Israel."

Deuteronomy 33:11 "Bless, LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands; crush the loins of his adversaries, of those that hate him, that they rise not again."

First Samuel 15:33 And Samuel said, "As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women." And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.

First Samuel 17:46 This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down, and cut off your head; and I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

First Kings 2:23 Then King Solomon swore by the LORD, saying, "God do so to me and more also if this word does not cost Adonijah his life!
First Kings 2:29 And when it was told King Solomon, "Joab has fled to the tent of the LORD, and hey, he is beside the altar," Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, saying, "Go, strike him down."
First Kings 2:31 The king replied to him, "Do as he has said, strike him down and bury him; and thus take away from me and from my father's house the guilt for the blood which Joab shed without cause.

Psalm 26:5 I hate the company of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.
Psalm 89:23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down those who hate him.
Psalm 97:10 The LORD loves those who hate evil; he preserves the lives of His saints; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Psalm 101:3 I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cleave to me.
Psalm 119:113 I hate double-minded persons, but I love your law.
Psalm 119:128 Therefore I direct my steps by all your precepts; I hate every false way.
Psalm 119:163 I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love your law.
Psalm 120:6 Too long have I had my residence among those who hate peace.
Psalm 129:5 May all who hate Zion be put to shame and turned backward!
Psalm 139:21 Do I not hate those who hate you, LORD? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
Psalm 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I consider them my enemies.

Proverbs 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge.

Proverbs 20:19 He who goes about gossiping reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with one who speaks foolishly.
Ephesians 5:7 Therefore do not associate with them.

Nahum 2:13 "Hey, I am against you," says the LORD of hosts [of unconditional forgiveness, reconciliation, and love], "and I will burn your chariots in smoke, and the sword shall devour your young lions; I will cut off your prey from the earth, and the voice of your messengers shall no more be heard."

Matthew 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Matthew 12:34 You brood of vipers! how can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Matthew 13:41 The Son of Man will send His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers,
13:42 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there humans of both genders will weep and gnash their teeth.
13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind;
13:48 when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.
13:49 So it will be at The Close of The Age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous,
13:50 and throw them into The Furnace of Fire [i.e. invisible-flames/outer-darkness Lake of Fire]; there both men and women will weep and gnash their teeth.

Matthew 23:33 You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to Hell?
Matthew 26:24 The Son of Man goes as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."

Mark 14:21 For the Son of Man goes as it is written of Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."

Luke 3:7 He said therefore to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luke 9:5 "And wherever they do not receive you, when you leave that town shake off the dust from your feet as a testimony against them."

John 15:6 If a human does not stay in me, he is thrown out as a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire and burned.

Romans 16:17 I appeal to you, brethren, to take note of those who create dissensions and difficulties, in opposition to the doctrine which you have been taught; avoid them.

First Corinthians 16:22 If any one has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come!

Second Corinthians 6:17 "Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them," says the Lord, "and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you."

Second Thessalonians 3:14 If any one refuses to obey what we say in this letter, note that person, and have nothing to do with them, that he or she may be ashamed.

Titus 3:10 As for a person who is factious, after admonishing him (or her) once or twice, have nothing more to do with him/her,
Titus 3:11 knowing that such a person is perverted and sinful; he/she is self-condemned.

Second John 1:8 Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward.
Second John 1:9 Any one who goes ahead and does not stay in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he/she who stays in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son.
Second John 1:10 If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him or her into the house or give him/her any greeting;
Second John 1:11 for he/she who greets him (or her) shares his/her wicked work.

Revelation 14:9 And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any one worships The Beast and his Image, and receives a [666-tattoo] Mark on his [or her] forehead or on his hand,
Revelation 14:10 he [or she] also shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured unmixed into the cup of His anger, and he/she shall be tormented with fire and sulphur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb [sheep and not goat].
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever; and they have no rest, day or night [time periods], these worshipers of The Beast and his Image, and whoever receives The Mark of his name."

Revelation 20:10 ...and The Devil who had deceived them was thrown into The [outer-darkness, invisible-flames] Lake of Fire and Sulphur where The Beast and The false Prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night [time periods] to the ages of the ages.

Revelation 20:15 ...and if any one's name was not found written in The Book of Life, he/she was thrown into The [perpetual] Lake of Fire [not some temporary burning garbage pit of Gehenna outside the city of Jerusalem].
Revelation 21:27 But nothing unclean shall enter it, nor any one who practices abomination or falsehood, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
Revelation 22:15 Outside are the [homogay/homosodomite] dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood.

So clearly:

First John 4:8 He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.

The vengeful and eternally-punishing/tormenting God is . . . unconditional love?

Kill Them

It has been noted that authorities take bomb threats very seriously. Buildings are temporarily evacuated, like during a fire drill.

And it is remembered that, during WW II, Allies dropped leaflets on the general populace to warn them to leave or take cover for the imminent bombing which would soon occur. Many sailors of our Navy weren't so lucky at Pearl Harbor.

I can hardly wait for ISIS to come over to America, and decapitate only those deserving what ISIS is proficient at.

I cannot do it myself (even though I would like to), but it's for damn sure that it needs to be done, and as soon as possible.

The quicker, the better.

And who are the targets? Who do I desire to be promptly obliterated as vile vermin?

I am surrounded by certain fools, here and there. Certain fools who - they themselves - are the problem. And even companions of such fools who walk with them and talk with them, and even seem to be chums or buds with them.

Job 34:2 Hear my words, you wise men, and give ear to me, you who know;
3 for the ear tests words as the palate tastes food.
4 Let us choose what is right; let us determine among ourselves what is good.
5 For Job has said, 'I am innocent, and God has taken away my right;
6 in spite of my right I am considered a liar; my wound is incurable, though I am without transgression.'
7 What man is like Job, who drinks up scoffing like water,
8 who goes in company with evildoers and walks with wicked humans?
9 For he has said, 'It profits a man nothing that he should take delight in God.'
10 Therefore, hear me, you of understanding, far be it from God that He does wickedness, and from the Almighty that He does wrong.
11 For according to the work of a human He will requite her, and according to her ways He will make it befall her.
12 Of a truth, God will not do wickedly, and the Almighty will not pervert justice.
13 Who gave Him charge over the Earth and who laid on Him the whole world?
14 If He would take back His Spirit to Himself, and gather to Himself His breath,
15 all flesh would perish together, and humans would return to dust.
16 If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say.
17 Shall one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn Him who is righteous and mighty,
18 who says to a king, 'Worthless one,' and to nobles, 'Wicked man';
19 who shows no partiality to princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor, for they are all the work of His hands?
20 In a moment they die; at midnight the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away by no human hand.
21 For His eyes are upon the ways of a human, and He sees all her steps.
22 There is no gloom or deep darkness where evildoers may hide themselves.
23 For he has not appointed a time for any woman to go before God in judgment.
24 He shatters the mighty without investigation, and sets others in their place.
25 Thus, knowing their works, he overturns them in the night, and they are crushed.
26 He strikes them for their wickedness in the sight of humans,
27 because they turned aside from following Him, and had no regard for any of His ways,
28 so that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him, and he heard the cry of the afflicted.

Psalm 50:18 If you see a thief, you are a friend of his; and you keep company with [porno-hairstyle-indecency-flaunting adulteresses].

It is practically impossible for me to completely avoid such fools, because I have to drive my car by them, shop in their non-predictably-present defiling vicinity, worship in the church they infest, besieged with the sight of such whenever I turn on the TV. I am literally trapped with them living and moving around within the same community which I reside in, and cannot afford to escape.

It is dangerous to be around them, because ISIS might consider them to be my partners and willing associates. And it would be extremely difficult to convince them otherwise -- even though I intrinsically almost worship the burka and hijab modesty of devout female islamic fundamentalists. As I do old-tyme Catholic nuns. The Amish. And the great-great-great-great grandmothers with their chignons and bonnets, long sleeves and long skirts, and boots, of the Old West and early pioneer-pilgrim America.

Certainly, not everyone I see roaming around is such a [mopheaded] fool. Chignoned up-do hairstyles are occasionally worn by a scant number of thankfully but only-sometimes rational and sane individuals. And sure, everyone has their peculiar and disgusting deficiencies, (including myself), but I find certain fools exhibiting that particular type of needlessly-erotic-hairstyle foolishness especially insidious, obnoxious, and disgusting, and totally non-acceptable and non-tolerable.

The fools themselves could (it seems to me) VERY easily rectify the situation by consistently doing just a little thing to alleviate the problem and the burden they themselves are and which they are causing and which they alone are at fault and to be blamed for.

Jeremiah 23:33 When one of this people, or a prophet, or a priest asks you, "What is the burden of the LORD?" you shall say to them, "You are the burden, and I will throw you off," says the LORD.
Jeremiah 23:34 And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, "The burden of the LORD," I will punish that man and his household.
Jeremiah 23:36 But "the burden of the LORD" you shall mention no more, for the burden is every man's own word, and you pervert the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God.
Jeremiah 23:38 But if you say, "The burden of the LORD," thus says the LORD, "Because you have said these words, 'The burden of the LORD,' when I sent to you, saying, "You shall not say, 'The burden of the LORD,'
Jeremiah 23:39 therefore, hey, I will surely lift you up and cast you away from my presence, you and the city which I gave to you and your fathers.
Jeremiah 23:40 And I will bring upon you everlasting reproach and perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten."

Rubber bands, or some equivalent thereof, are obviously inexpensive. Such can be easily purchased from any grocery store with school supplies, or stationary, or maybe even hardware store. And, as you might guess, rubber bands are meant to fasten, or bind, something which clearly and conveniently needs to be bound.

In this case, there is definitely a something that needs to always have been bound or tied - perpetually - when in general public view of both genders of humans at large.

Until such is actually and consistently bound, as it should be, I eagerly await the headchoppers from the Middle East to do their thing against the fools I want them to attack and destroy.

Joshua 7:12 Therefore the people of Israel cannot stand before their enemies; they turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become a thing for destruction. I will be with you no more, unless you destroy the devoted things from among you.
Joshua 7:13 Up, sanctify the people, and say, 'Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow; for thus says the LORD, God of Israel, "There are devoted things in the midst of you, Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies, until you take away the devoted things from among you."'
First Samuel 7:3 Then Samuel said to all the house of Israel, "If you are returning to the LORD with all your heart, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtaroth from among you, and direct your heart to the LORD, and serve Him only, and He will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines [i.e. Palestinians]."
Ezekiel 20:38 "I will purge out the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against me; I will bring them out of the land where they travel, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD."

During the summer, and I suppose for the excuse of "coolheadedness," the rubber-band equivalents were frequently used by a substantial number of persons (but who innately were impenitent and brazen fools at heart). But now, during wintertime, what was then bound during warmer weather is now often unbound and loose . . . causing untold sexually harassment, irritation, consternation, and antisocial hostility wherever the fools freely wander around within towns, cities, and most everywhere they want.

A few Bible verses come to mind.

Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with wise humans becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.

ISIS should realize that those certain fools who I encounter and who surround me now and then, who I myself want targeted by them, in NO way are my "friends," nor "neighbors" with who I have friendly communication, nor do I consider them real Jews, nor do I consider them genuine Christians, nor even bonafide legitimate American citizens.

Deuteronomy 32:42 [RSV] I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh - with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the long-haired heads of the enemy.

They are despicable foreigners of visual-appearance stench and stink who neither belong in this country nor anywhere on God's green Earth.

Just as one flashing stoplight at an intersection causes a long traffic jam, or a smoldering match causes a huge forest fire damaging scores of houses, or a defective auto part demands a recall of all cars, or a leaking radiator hose overheats a car or a little nail causes a flat tire, or a little kerosene dumped into the top of a silo of corn wrecks the whole batch, so it is with gals who pseudo-ignorantly or indifferently or arrogantly or defiantly and rebelliously weakly conform to demonic media "glamor" propaganda as silent loose-long-haired terrorists inflicting massive and far-reaching confusion everywhere among and against victims of mopheaded visual assault and aggression.

Ecclesiastes 9:18 [Chignoned/Ponytailed] wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one [loose-long-haired] sinneress destroys much good.

And for what purpose? WHY sensuously titillate those men at large who the mopheaded female perpetrators have no intention whatsoever of arousing for sexual connections of whatever type and sort? And they do, in fact, so arouse them -- without prior approval or permission from such men, who in actuality not only have not actively nor passively solicited such mopheaded porno stimulation, but also cannot make use of it themselves, and have no intention of starting or wanting to make use of it with the perpetrator.

Perhaps such wrong-headed playboy-brainwashed mopheads presume that men like to see live-person porn in motion? Or gullibly believe cowardly and dishonestly-lying male wimps who say that public female mopheadedness "does not bother them," or "they can take it without caving."

REALLY? Let's see what such lying-wimp cowards do later on when no one is looking, or they presume that no one is looking.

Jeremiah 23:21 "I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied."
Jeremiah 23:32 "Hey, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams," says the LORD, "and who tell them and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them; so they do not profit this people at all," says the LORD.
Jeremiah 29:9 "...for it is a lie which they are prophesying to you in my name; I did not send them," says the LORD.
Jeremiah 29:23 "...because they have committed folly in Israel, they have committed [mopheadedness-incited] adultery with their neighbors' wives, and they have spoken in my name lying words which I did not command them. I am the one who knows, and I am witness," says the LORD.

Hopefully, ISIS should realize that neither the God who created His benevolent creation, nor truly-Christian saints who acknowledge that fact and consequently admire and praise Him for that, are the ones who blaspheme Him for the misconduct of certain fools.

Romans 2:24 . . . For, as it is written, "The name of God is blasphemed among the nations because of you [hypocritical so-called-"christian" mopheads]."

Romans 9:6 But it is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel belong to "Israel."

Does the LORD "accept us, with our imperfections, as we are?" Does He "love us in spite of our oopsies?" -- as mopheads and their male and female patsies piously irrationalize that "they are clothed in Christ's righteousness" - thus misconfiguring that they do not need to modestly have themselves decently clothed, particularly relating what cheap rubber bands fasten and bind on female human beings.

Habakkuk 1:4 So the law is slacked and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous, so justice goes forth perverted.

The most dangerous, potentially diabolical, and horrendously devastating concept in all existence is the cross-adoring substitutionary-blood-sacrifice forgiving gospel of Jesus Christ. The application of such by certain fools who presume that such applies to themselves is unspeakably asinine and absurd beyond description.

Luke 6:46 "Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?

Romans 6:15 What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!

Second Corinthians 4:2 We have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways; we refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
Second Corinthians 11:3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
Second Corinthians 12:21 I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those who sinned before and have not repented of the [porno-mopheadedness-idolizing] impurity, [mopheads-seduction-based] immorality, and [life-sized porno-mophead] licentiousness which they have practiced.

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, [porno-mopheadedness-idolizing] impurity, [walking-porno-mophead] licentiousness
5:20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit,
5:21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
5:23 gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law.

Ephesians 4:14 ...so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the cunning of [aberrant talk-show gurus and columnists, femmie-"bishop" false prophetesses, satanic magazine and TV advertisers, etc.] by their craftiness in deceitful wiles.

Ephesians 4:19 ...they have become callous and have given themselves up to [moving-porno-mophead] licentiousness, greedy to practice every kind of uncleanness.

First Peter 4:3 Let the time that is past suffice for doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in [walking-porno-mophead] licentiousness, orgy passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless [porno-mopheads-pix-in-high-school-yearbooks] idolatry.
Second Peter 2:2 And many will follow their [public-porno-mopheaded] licentiousness, and because of them the way of truth will be reviled.

Jude 1:4 For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, godless persons who pervert the grace of our God into [public-porno-mopheaded] licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

"But in order to attract a man, I have to display my [lurid and lewd] mopheadedness like a porn model to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who haplessly happens to see me."

Romans 3:8 And why not do evil that good may come? --as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.

Come on in, ISIS, "the [mopheaded and mopheads-supportive] harvest is plentiful, but the [executionary] laborers are few." But, it behooves you to be selectively prudent in discerning who is who:

Song of Solomon 2:14 Oh MY dove, in the [out-of-public-view secure-and-safe] clefts of the rock, in the [secret-bedroom] covert of the cliff, let me see your face [not the mopheaded face of some harlot-equivalent irresponsibly roaming around in general public view], let me hear your voice [on the TV or radio for newscast updates?], for your voice is sweet, and your face is attractive.

Song of Solomon 2:15 Catch [and exterminate] the [pesty-and-annoying, cute-vomit, publicly-mopheaded, deplorably-disruptive] foxes, the little [female] foxes, who spoil the [body-parts-displayed-in-marriage-only] vineyards, for our [private-view] vineyards are in blossom.

Isaiah 13:9 Hey, the Day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make Earth a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it.

First Corinthians 5:13 God judges those outside. Drive out the wicked person from among you.

ISIS must be righteously discriminating. Not at all "inclusive." NO "coexisting" with heretical-apostate-infidel fecal filth. Never "throw the [decent] baby out with the [indecent] bathwater."

Malachi 3:18 Then once more you shall distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.

The atoning blood of Jesus does not apply, and never will, to female mopheads who have absolutely no intention whatsoever of eradicating their lewd and disorderly-conduct public-nuisance wrong and wicked hairstyle. The so-called-"sexy" loose long hair is an abomination not merely to ISIS but to the LORD and His true saints, and those who in pretended and pseudo-innocent ignorance impose such must be THE targets who ISIS is destined to literally and thankfully annihilate.

This interesting note was printed in a church newsletter recently:

This coming Sunday we will be having a guest pastor from out of state. He has requested that all female parishioners and female visitors who plan to attend the church service on Sunday morning not display any loose-long-haired mopheadedness within the church building at any time, which building is also a smoke-free facility. His request will be enforced against any violators by direct confrontation with a couple of armed security guards on the grounds. Visitors coming to the church on Sunday morning will be forbidden entrance by the guards if they display mopheadedness at the point of entry.

I found that fascinating. And so it was on Sunday morning.

All visitors and parishioners were given a pink Warning Notice before entering the church building, and the reaction of some of them was (as expected) judgmentally impolite, even harsh and rude in some cases. Nevertheless, there were no exceptions. And most people who were not ready nor willing to bind their hair, nor insist that their friends or relatives tie up mopheadedness into a chignon or back-of-head ponytail, quietly departed either perplexed or looking hurt, fearful, scowling and/or muttering miffed slander under their breath as they stridently trotted off in a huff to their vehicles in the parking lot.

"It takes one in every crowd," and during the church service, some fool female in the congregation slipped off her rubber band and let her long hair hang loose. As the pastor preached, he saw it, and interrupted the text of his message, calling for the security guards to approach the altar. They did, and (after briefly conferring with them) walked over with them to the mophead and began a dialogue:

PASTOR: "Did you not read the stipulation notice outside the church building before you entered concerning to not appear inside the sanctuary displaying loose long hair at any time?"

MOPHEAD: "I did, but afterwards I thought about it, and figured that I have my legal constitutional rights to wear my hair however I please in our country of liberty and freedom."

PASTOR: "Ever hear of the verses:

Romans 14:15 If your brother is being injured by how you miswear your hair, you are no longer walking in love. Do not let what you eat cause the ruin of one for whom Christ died.

First Peter 2:16 Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil; but live as servants of God?"

MOPHEAD: "I realize that no non-concealed guns are allowed on the premises pertaining to your sign outside, and that another sign prohibits smoking on the facility, so you have a right to exercise reasonable and legally allowed religious restrictions on your religiously-zoned property for exempted-from-civilian-civil-rights religious observances.

But, your Romans 14:15 quotation is errant in that the word used there is "eating" instead of "miswearing hair," and I have no "brother." Not only that, but your First Peter 2:16 quotation applies to "men" and not women."

PASTOR: "You are wrong on both counts. Pertaining to "eating," St Paul adds:

Romans 14:21 ..."it is right not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that makes your brother stumble." Apparently, you do not want to accept the rather-obvious motivation and intention behind the specific semantics of Scripture.

And the word "men" is a lamentable English-language mistranslation, being that the verse actually reads:

First Peter 2:16 ...as free, and not having freedom as a cover of evil, but as slaves of God.

You are a "blind guide, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel," as Matthew 23:24 infers!

Second Timothy 2:14 Remind them of this, and charge them before the Lord to avoid disputing about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.

What do you think is meant by the words "unbind her hair" in the surrounding suspicion-of-committing-adultery context of Numbers 5:18 which states:

Numbers 5:18 [RSV/NASV] And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and unbind the hair of the woman's head, and place in her hands the cereal offering of remembrance, which is the cereal offering of jealousy. And in his hand the priest shall have the water of bitterness that brings the curse."

MOPHEAD: "I'm not sure. Most likely it was that the woman referred to had had her presumably-long hair tied up some way before the priest loosened it, which was probably embarrassing to her, and perhaps a minor type of sexual assault which her husband who looked on might not have appreciated."

PASTOR: "And who is being admired with the phrase: "flowing locks" (which obviously refers to loose long hair) within the Song of Solomon 7:5 surrounding context: some whore or slut or prostitute . . . or instead someone's own bride or wife, and in private with her?

Song of Solomon 7:1 How graceful are your footsteps in sandals, royal maiden! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.
2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.
3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, overlooking Damascus [in Syria, close to Iraq and Iran and Lebanon].
5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
6 How fair and pleasant you are, loved one, delectable maiden!
7 You are stately as a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.
8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
9 and your kisses like the best wine that goes down smoothly, flowing gently over the lips of sleepers.
10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me.
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the fields, and lodge in the villages;
12 let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love [not "lust"].
13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and over our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, my beloved?"

MOPHEAD: "I suppose that the writer is referring to someone, whether wife or concubine, who he is currently married to -- rather than some masseuse or escort or whoever who does not presently belong to him in marriage."

PASTOR: "And does the KJV in their first few verses of First Corinthians chapter 11 advocate a woman regarding her glorious loose long hair as being sufficient for a prayer shawl or veil or covering:

First Corinthians 11:1 Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
2 I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I have delivered them to you.
3 But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
4 Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head,
5 but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled dishonors her head; it is the same as if her head were shaven.
6 For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her wear a veil.
7 For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
8 For man was not made from woman, but woman from man.
9 Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.
10 That is why a woman ought to have authority over her head, because of the angels.
11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman;
12 for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God.
13 Judge for yourselves; is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
14 Does not nature itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is degrading to him,
15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering.
16 If any one intends to be contentious, we recognize no such practice, nor do the churches of God?"

MOPHEAD: "Whether or not whoever wrote the KJV advocates a woman regarding her long hair as adequate for a prayer covering or veil appears quite irrelevant, being that - according to that verse - "the churches of God" neither advocate nor regard it as appropriate."

PASTOR: "So what are you going to do now about you currently displaying your loose long hair here in the congregation? Are you going to bind it with this rubber band, or not? If you choose to not do so, you will be asked to promptly leave the premises, and if you do not promptly enough comply, the security guards will physically assist you in escorting you off the premises. What is it going to be?"

MOPHEAD: "I'll call 911 if you or anyone else touches me."

PASTOR: "I am giving you an ultimatum. WHAT is it going to be? Answer me! Either correctively adjust your hairstyle, or get your trouble-causing carcass out of here!"

MOPHEAD: "I'm out of here, and never coming back here again. I might sue, with the judge throwing my case out of court for filing a frivolous lawsuit, and you might countersue for disturbing the peace and causing mental anguish, collecting a huge monetary remedy to put into your collection plate.

My Facebook friends are going to hear about this, and I am going to file a complaint against you and yours to the IRS regarding your tax exemption for you all causing such anti-equality anti-gay discriminatory abuse, for which my next tax return might get audited."

CHURCH BOARD CHAIRMAN: "If she makes this known to TV news and the metro newspaper, won't all this mis-affect our reputation with a lot of sources, and cause us to significantly lose rostered church members, especially those with deep pockets?"

PASTOR: "Remember the Caleb and the Gideon Factors:

Numbers 13:26 And they came to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation of the people of Israel in the wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.
13:27 And they told him, "We came to the land to which you sent us; it flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.
13:28 Yet the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified and very large; and besides, we saw the descendants of Anak there.
13:29 The Amalekites reside in the land of the Negeb; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites inhabit the hill country; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and along the Jordan."
13:30 But Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, "Let us go up at once, and occupy it; for we are well able to overcome it."
13:31 Then the men who had gone up with him said, "We are not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we."
13:32 So they brought to the people of Israel an evil report of the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land, through which we have gone, to spy it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature.
13:33 And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim); and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them."

Judges 7:2 The LORD said to Gideon, "The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, 'My own hand has delivered me.'
7:3 Now therefore proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, 'Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him return home.'" And Gideon tested them; twenty-two thousand returned, and ten thousand remained.
4 And the LORD said to Gideon, "The people are still too many; take them down to the water and I will test them for you there; and he of whom I say to you, 'This man shall go with you,' shall go with you; and any of whom I say to you, 'This man shall not go with you,' shall not go."
5 So he brought the people down to the water; and the LORD said to Gideon, "Every one that laps the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set by himself; likewise every one that kneels down to drink."
6 And the number of those that lapped, putting their hands to their mouths, was three hundred men; but all the rest of the people knelt down to drink water.
7 And the LORD said to Gideon, "With the three hundred men who lapped I will deliver you, and give the Midianites into your hand; and let all the others go every man to his home."

Ecclesiastes 10:1 Dead flies make the perfumer's ointment give off an evil odor; so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.

When mopheaded rotten apples are removed from the basket, the odor will be gone, and the remainder of the fruit will be acceptable to sell to the public at large. Why cause choice-activist good people to stay out of this church and go somewhere else to passionately serve them instead because of the sickening pollution imposed by a few diehard mopheads infesting this church and dragging us all down into resentful sedate inactivity?"

CHURCH BOARD CHAIRMAN: "I see your point. Sorry about questioning you, Pastor."

In . . . or Out?

Both of us have heard (at least I know that I personally have heard) others say: "When we get to Heaven, there will be some there who we expected to be there who are not there, and there will be some there who we did not expect to be there who will be there. Most of all, we'll be surprised if we're there."

There is something about that lack-of-any-discrimination pseudo-cutesy remark which I detest, because it implies that there is no standard anyone will be judged by, that we are all a mixed bag with uncertainly as to which side of Judgment's Scale we will tip down more, and that we cannot trust or follow anyone in this life as our guiding example. And it does absolutely nothing for our assurance of salvation, but only leaves us with a big question mark and confusion about not only everyone around us but even ourselves.

Again, I find that both extremely irritating and repulsive.

It has been said, both concerning and regarding those who accuse others:

Matthew 5:44 But I say to you: 'Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
Matthew 5:45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His Sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the injust.'

Matthew 7:1 "Judge not, that you be not judged."

Matthew 7:5 "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye."

Luke 6:37 "Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven

Luke 6:42 Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye.

John 12:47 If any one hears my sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.

Roman 2:3 Do you suppose, O human, that when you judge those who do such things and yet do them yourself, you will escape the judgment of God?

Romans 12:19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord."

Romans 14:4 Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Master is able to make him stand.

Romans 14:10 Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

First Corinthians 4:5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then every human will receive his or her commendation (or condemnation) from God.

James 4:12 There is One Lawgiver and Judge, He who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you that you judge your neighbor?

But does that contradict, or fly in the face of sometimes even harsh or impolite and rude
judgmentalism done by the righteous against the wicked?

Leviticus 19:15 "You shall do no injustice in judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor."

Numbers 31:17 Now therefore, kill [or terroristically suicide-bomb?] every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man by lying with him.

Deuteronomy 13:4 You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him and cleave to Him.

Joshua 10:40 So Joshua defeated the whole land, the hill country and the Negeb and the lowland and the slopes, and all their kings; he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all [children gunned down in public schools?] who breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded.
Joshua 11:11 And they put to the sword all who were in it [co-workers gunned by while working inside businesses?], utterly destroying them; there was none left who breathed, and he burned Hazor with fire.
Joshua 11:14 And all the provisions of these cities and the cattle, the people of Israel took for their possessions; but every man they smote with the edge of the sword [or Trade-Tower-demolishing jetliners?], until they had destroyed them, and they did not leave any who breathed.

Judges 21:10 So the congregation sent there twelve thousand of their bravest men, and commanded them, "Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabeshgilead [Nazi concentration camps or Hiroshima and Nagasaki?] with the edge of the sword [Zyklon-B gas in gas chambers, or fission and fusion atomic bombs?]; also the women and the little ones [shot dead into gulleys by firing squads, or incinerated in the nuclear fireballs?].

First Samuel 15:33 And Samuel said, "As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women." And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.

First Samuel 17:46 This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down, and cut off your head; and I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

Psalm 119:113 I hate double-minded humans, but I love your law.

Psalm 137:9 Happy shall he be who takes your little ones and dashes them against the rock!
Psalm 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.

Proverbs 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge.

Isaiah 10:3 What will you do on the day of punishment, in the storm which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help, and where will you leave your wealth?
Isaiah 32:6 For the fool speaks folly, and his mind plots iniquity: to practice godlessness, to utter error concerning the LORD, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink.
Isaiah 65:15 You shall leave your name to my chosen for a curse, and the Lord GOD will slay you; but His servants He will call by a different name.

Jeremiah 9:2 Oh that I had in the desert a wayfarers' lodging place, that I might leave my people and go away from them! For they are all adulterers, a company of treacherous people.
Jeremiah 17:11 Like the partridge that gathers a brood which she did not hatch, so is he who gets riches but not by right; in the midst of his days they will leave him, and at his end he will be a fool.
Jeremiah 46:28 "Fear not, Jacob my servant," says the LORD, "for I am with you. I will make a full end of all the nations to which I have driven you, but of you I will not make a full end. I will chasten you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished."
Jeremiah 50:20 "In those days and in that time," says the LORD, "iniquity shall be sought in Israel, and there shall be none; and sin in Judah, and none shall be found; for I will pardon those whom I leave as a remnant."

Lamentations 3:39 Why should a living man complain, a man (or woman), about the punishment of his (or her) sins?

Ezekiel 39:28 Then they shall know that I am the LORD their God because I sent them into exile among the nations, and then gathered them into their own land. I will leave none of them remaining among the nations any more

Hosea 12:14 Ephraim has given bitter provocation; so his LORD will leave his bloodguilt upon him, and will turn back upon him his reproaches (and so his name was left out of the tribes named in Revelation chapter 7, as was that of Dan's).

Zephaniah 3:12 For I will leave in the midst of you a people humble and lowly. They shall seek refuge in the name of the LORD,

Malachi 4:1 "For hey, the Day comes, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble; the Day that comes shall burn them up," says the LORD of hosts, "so that it will leave them neither root nor branch."

Matthew 5:48 You, therefore, MUST be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect [or else you will burn in Hell forever].

Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in the dark, utter in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim upon the housetops [the wicked like to keep things secret out of probably-groundless fear of reprisal, so that everyone is "not on the same page" and thus there is confusion and anger).

Matthew 15:14 "Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit."

Matthew 23:33 You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to Hell?

Matthew 26:24 "The Son of man goes as it is written of him [Judas Iscariot], but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."

Mark 6:11 "And if any place will not receive you and they refuse to hear you, when you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet for a testimony against them."

Mark 7:8 You leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of humans."

Mark 14:21 "For the Son of man goes as it is written of him [Judas Iscariot], but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."

Luke 6:46 "Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?"

Luke 23:39 And one of the hanged criminals blasphemed Him, saying, If you are Christ, save Yourself and us.
40 But answering, the other rebuked him [i.e. was judgmental, intolerant, rude, or at least impolite?], retorting: "Do you not fear God, being that you are in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly deserve what we're getting, receiving the due penalty of our "oopsie?" "mismanagement?" sinful "act" or work . . . but this Man has done nothing amiss.
42 And he said to Jesus: "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."
43 And Jesus said to him: "Truthfully I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."

John 7:24 "Do not judge by appearances, but judge [judge!] with right judgment."

John 8:44 You are of your father the Devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Acts 13:10 and (Paul) said, "You son of the devil, you enemy against all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord?

Romans 2:8 but for those who are factious and do not obey the truth, but obey wickedness, there will be wrath and fury.

Romans 16:17 I appeal to you, brethren, to take note of those who create dissensions and difficulties, in opposition to the doctrine which you have been taught; avoid them.

First Corinthians 5:3 For though absent in body I am present in spirit, and as if present, I have already pronounced judgment
First Corinthians 5:4 in the name of the Lord Jesus on the man who has done such a thing. When you are assembled, and my spirit is present, with the power of our Lord Jesus,
First Corinthians 5:5 you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit might be saved in The Day of the Lord Jesus.

First Corinthians 16:22 If any one has no love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Our Lord, come!

Second Corinthians 6:17 "Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them [ZERO "tolerance" and NO "inclusive diversity!]," says the Lord, "and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you."

Second Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves [first - before starting on others], whether you are in the faith, prove your own selves. Do you not know your own selves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless you are reprobates?

Ephesians 4:32 and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

First Thessalonians 2:14 For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus which are in Judea; for you suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they did from demonic "jews",
First Thessalonians 2:15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all humans.

Second Timothy 3:2 humans will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, non-grateful, non-holy,
3 inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good,
4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
5 holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people [ZERO "tolerance" and NO "inclusive diversity!].
6 For among them are those who make their way into households and capture weak [and wimpy] women [sucking in adulterous soap operas and bad advice in women's magazines and talk-show feminists advocating and advertising unfaithfulness], burdened with sins and swayed by various impulses,
7 who will listen to anybody and can never arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
8 As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men [and women!] also oppose the truth, men [and women!] of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith;
9 but they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.

Titus 1:9 he/she must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he/she may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it.

Titus 3:10 As for a man [or woman] who is factious, after admonishing him [or her] once or twice, have nothing more to do with him [or her],
Titus 3:11 knowing that such a person is perverted and sinful; he [or she] is self-condemned.

James 1:7 For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man [or woman] [sometimes against but also sometimes for abortion and/or homosexual pseudo-"gayness" or mopheaded or sleeveless or slacksless or soxless warm-weather immodesty, or evolution rather than creationism] - unstable in all his [or her] ways - will receive anything from the Lord.

First John 2:3 And by this we may be sure that we know Him, if we keep/obey His commandments.
2:4 He who says "I know him" but disobeys His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in Him;
3:22 and we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep/obey His commandments and do what pleases Him [not aberrant people].
3:24 All who keep His commandments reside in Him, and He in them. And by this we know that He reside in us, by the Spirit who He has given us.
4:20 If any one says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.

First John 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey His commandments.
First John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
Deuteronomy 30:11 this commandment which I command you this day is not too hard for you, neither is it far off.

First John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.
5 Who is he/she who overcomes the world but he [or she] who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is He NOT "she] who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood.
7 For there are [the Trinity] who bear record in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.

Second John 1:10 If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [of Christ, and the doctrinal totality of His Word, the Bible], do not receive him [nor her] into the house [or apartment or condo or townhouse or cabin or car, especially if they have a lethal weapon] nor give him [nor her] any greeting [ i.e. No Soliciting. Private - Keep Out! No Trespassing. Go AWAY.]

Jude 1:5 Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe [does not sound like 'Once Saved Always Saved' to me!].
Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was attested as having pleased God [it was not a random pick-up for no cause].

Jude 1:14 It was of these also that Enoch in the seventh generation from Adam prophesied, saying, "Hey, the Lord came with His holy myriads,
15 to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the godless of all their deeds of ungodliness which they have committed in such an godless way, and of all the harsh things which godless sinners have spoken against him."
16 These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions, loud-mouthed boasters, flattering people to gain advantage.
17 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 they said to you, "In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own godless [pro-choice for pro-mopheaded, pro-sleevelessly-naked-armed, pro-legs-bared-by-shorts, pro-soxless-in-noisy-flipflop-sandals] passions."
19 It is these who set up divisions [thus are divisive], worldly people, devoid of the Spirit [whether they are "charismatic" or not.

It is relatively easy to assuredly define someone as evil and definitely NOT a Christian
when Scripture itself summarizes the lives of certain individuals
who the Text plainly states: "did evil in the sight of the Lord."

First Kings 11:6 So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, and did not wholly follow the LORD, as David his father had done.
14:22 And Judah did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done.
16:25 Omri did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, and did more evil than all who were before him.
22:52 [Ahaziah] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.

Second Kings 3:2 [Jehoram] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, though not like his father and mother, for he put away the pillar of Baal which his father had made.
8:18 And [Jehoram] walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as the house of Ahab had done, for the daughter of Ahab was his wife. And he did what was evil in the sight of the LORD.
8:27 [Ahaziah] also walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as the house of Ahab had done, for he was son-in-law to the house of Ahab.
13:2 [Jehoahaz] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin; he did not depart from them.
13:11 [Jehoash] also did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin, but he walked in them.
14:24 And [Jeroboam] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin.
15:9 And [Zechariah] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as his fathers had done. He did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin.
15:18 And [Menahem] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart all his days from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin.
15:24 And [Pekahiah] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin.
15:28 And [Pekah] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not depart from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel to sin.
17:2 And [Hoshea] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, yet not as the kings of Israel who were before him.
21:2 And [Manasseh] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to the abominable practices of the nations whom the LORD drove out before the people of Israel.
21:16 Moreover Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another, besides the sin which he made Judah to sin so that they did what was evil in the sight of the LORD.
21:20 And [Amon] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, as Manasseh his father had done.
23:32 And [Jehoahaz] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.
23:37 And [Jehoiakim] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.

Second Kings 24:9 And [Jehoiachin] did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father had done.

Similarly, it is relatively easy to assuredly define someone as righteous and certainly a Christian
when Scripture itself summarizes the lives of certain individuals."

Romans 16:1 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deaconess of the church at Cenchreae,
2 that you may receive her in the Lord as befits the saints, and help her in whatever she may require from you, for she has been a helper of many and of myself as well.
3 Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus,
4 who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I but also all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks;
5 greet also the church in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who was the first convert in Asia for Christ.
6 Greet Mary, who has worked hard among you.
7 Greet Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen and my fellow prisoners; they are men of note among the apostles, and they were in Christ before me.
8 Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord.
9 Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and my beloved Stachys.
10 Greet Apelles, who is approved in Christ. Greet those who belong to the family of Aristobulus.
11 Greet my kinsman Herodion. Greet those in the Lord who belong to the family of Narcissus.
12 Greet those workers in the Lord, Tryphaena and Tryphosa. Greet the beloved Persis, who has worked hard in the Lord.
13 Greet Rufus, eminent in the Lord, also his mother and mine.
14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brethren who are with them.
15 Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.
21 Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; so do Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my kinsmen.
22 I Tertius, the writer of this letter, greet you in the Lord.
23 Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you. Erastus, the city treasurer, and our brother Quartus, greet you.

First Corinthians 16:10 When Timothy comes, see that you put him at ease among you, for he is doing the work of the Lord, as I am.
11 So let no one despise him. Speed him on his way in peace, that he may return to me; for I am expecting him with the brethren.
12 As for our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to visit you with the other brethren, but it was not at all his will to come now. He will come when he has opportunity.
15 Now, brethren, you know that the household of Stephanas were the first converts in Achaia, and they have devoted themselves to the service of the saints;
16 I urge you to be subject to such men and to every fellow worker and laborer.
17 I rejoice at the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus, because they have made up for your absence;
18 for they refreshed my spirit as well as yours. Give recognition to such men.
19 The churches of Asia send greetings. Aquila and Prisca, together with the church in their house, send you hearty greetings in the Lord.

Colossians 4:7 Tychicus will tell you all about my affairs; he is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord.
8 I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are and that he may encourage your hearts,
9 and with him Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one of yourselves. They will tell you of everything that has taken place here.
10 Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, and Mark the cousin of Barnabas (concerning whom you have received instructions . . . if he comes to you, receive him,
11 and Jesus who is called Justus. These are the only men of the circumcision among my fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me.
12 Epaphras, who is one of yourselves, a servant of Christ Jesus, greets you, always remembering you earnestly in his prayers, that you may stand mature and fully assured in all the will of God.
13 For I bear him witness that he has worked hard for you and for those in Laodicea and in Hierapolis.
14 Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
15 Give my greetings to the brethren at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house.
16 And when this letter has been read among you, have it read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and see that you read also the letter from Laodicea.
17 And say to Archippus, "See that you fulfil the ministry which you have received in the Lord."

Second Timothy 1:15 You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, and among them Phygelus and Hermogenes.
16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me; he was not ashamed of my chains,
17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me eagerly and found me . . .
18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that Day--and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.

Second Timothy 4:10 For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica; Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
11 Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you; for he is very useful in serving me.
12 Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus.
13 When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments.
14 Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; the Lord will requite him for his works.
15 Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message.
16 At my first defense no one took my part; all deserted me. May it not be charged against them!
19 Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
20 Erastus remained at Corinth; Trophimus I left ill at Miletus.
21 Do your best to come before winter. Eubulus sends greetings to you, as do Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brethren.

Titus 3:12 When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there.
Titus 3:13 Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing.

Philemon 1:23 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends greetings to you,
Philemon 1:24 and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers.

First Peter 5:12 By Silvanus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God; stand fast in it.
First Peter 5:13 She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings; and so does my son Mark.

Third John 1:12 Demetrius has testimony from every one, and from the truth itself; I testify to him too, and you know my testimony is true.

Then on what basis or premises shall we both not judge
and then judge?

Sometimes, authentic Christians (or to-become-Christians) need to mature and require discipline [they cannot stay: 'Jesus saved me once and I do not have to learn anything more nor do anything else about it], but they [sometimes violently, perhaps initially-reluctantly-but-then-willingly] accept it . . and invariably when they do sin, they [like perfect-but-susceptible Eve in The Garden at the behest of Tempter Satan] fall into sin because of wicked duress around them which they neither wanted nor asked for:

Habakkuk 1:4 So the law is slacked and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous, so justice goes forth perverted.
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man [or woman] lays a snare, but he [or she] who trusts in the LORD is safe.
Psalm 56:11 in God I trust [the American Motto] without a fear. What can man [or woman] do to me?
Psalm 118:6 With the LORD on my side I do not fear. What can man [or woman] do to me?
Matthew 10:28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him [NOT "her"] who can [perpetually] destroy both soul and body [repeatedly forever] in Hell.

John 7:13 Yet for fear of demonic "jews" no one spoke openly of Him.
John 12:42 Nevertheless many even of the authorities believed in Him, but for fear of demonic pharisees they did not confess it, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
John 12:43 for they loved the praise of humans more than the praise of God.

John 19:38 After this Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of "the" [demonic] jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Master-Jew Jesus, and Pilate let him do so. So he came and took away His body.
John 20:19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of "the" [demonic] jews, Master-Jew Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."

Matthew 28:11 While they were going, hey, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place.
12 And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a bribe of money to the soldiers
13 and said, "Tell people, 'His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep [and so you will be fired from your jobs, if not executed for negligence, and never get re-hired again].'
14 And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble."
15 So they took the money and did as they were directed; and this story has been spread among demonic "jews" to this day.
John 19:22 Pilate answered [demonic "jews"], "What I have written I have written."
Acts 18:2 And he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to leave Rome [a foreshadowing of the Romans destroying Christ-murdering jews in Jerusalem in 70 A.D.]. And he went to see them
Acts 18:14 But when master-Jew Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the demonic "jews," "If it were a matter of wrongdoing or vicious crime, I should have reason to bear with you, Oh demonic "jews;"
Acts 18:15 but being that it is a matter of questions about words and names and your own law, see to it yourselves; I refuse to be a judge of these things." Acts 18:16 And he drove "the" [demonic] jews out of the tribunal.

Hebrews 13:6 Hence we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid; what can humans do to me?"

So, who perhaps were or even probably are generally-improving,
repenting-and-intending-betterment, fallibly-harassed-by-Satan/demons/evil-humans
genuine Christians or supporters of Christians?

Let me suggest a few from my point of view:

Christian oratorio-and-mass or choral-masterpiece-composers Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Verdi, Rachmaninoff, Tschaikovsky, Chopin, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Arvo Part, Palestrina, Purcell, Maurice Lauridsen, Eugene Butler, Randall Thompson, Billy Sunday, Peter Marshall, Roy and Dan and Marjorie and Terri Bloomquist, Bernt and Shirley Opsal, Billy and Franklin and Ruth Graham, Walter Maier, Luccock, Brown and Driver and Briggs, Strong, Thayer, Gesenius, Rosenius, Samuel Miller, Gornitzka, Lindberg, Walter Lang, Weatherhead, Sankey, Moody, Beza, Stephanus, Elzevir, Scrivener, Martin Luther, Erasmus, William Tyndale, Jerome, ben Asher?, Sir Isaac Newton, John Newton, Charles and John Wesley, John Knox, George Washington?, Thomas Jefferson?, John Adams?, Roy and Dale Evans, Samuel 'Mark Twain' Clemens?, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Johnny Cash, Roy Acuff, Ray Charles?, Elvis Presley?, Daniel Webster, Maynard Force, Larry Pierce, D James Kennedy, Jerry Falwell, Clearwaters, W B Riley, Barnhouse, Scalia, Alito, Thomas?, George W Bush?, Burgeon, Ronald Reagan?, John Kline?, J Edgar Hoover, Jan Blackstad, Herb and Dorothy Anderson, Harry Truman, Calvin Coolidge, Jesse Helms, Maynard Nelson, Isaac Watts, Ira Sankey, Henry Hyde, Scofield, Ed Meese, Mat Staver, Alan Sears, Scott Walker?, Pope Ratzinger-Benedict, Eugene Stime, Herb Smith, the Sistermans, John Peterson, Donna Davis, Lucille Thornsjo, Paul Harvey, Koch brothers?, Peter Ruckman, Joseph Chambers, Torrey, Hudson Taylor, Frannie Crosby, Henry Smart, Merrill Dunlop, Philipp Nicolai, Scriabin?, Ralph W Williams?, George Shearing?, John Williams?, Michaelangelo, Stephen Foster?, William Kirkpatrick, Roger Killian, Robert Lowry, Chester Gabriel, William Cowper, Lowell Mason, Paul Pegors, Bliss, Healey Willan, Vernon McGee, Charles Finney, Charles Stanley, Thomas Edison?, Bill Gates?, Spurgeon, Hodak, Voltaire?, Shakespeare?, Boehner?, Rick Perry, Gingrich, Ruth, Boaz, Naomi, Gideon, David, Hosea, Ken Ham, Limbaugh, Bill and Jim Abeler, Isaiah, Bronson? and Eastwood?, Oscar Shindler?, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Obadiah, Joel, Zechariah, Zephaniah, Malachi, Elijah, Elisha, Nehemiah, the Virgin Mary, Joseph, Shadrach and Meshech and Abednego, Daniel, Anna the prophetess, Cyrus, Nebuchadnezzar, Darius, Constantine, Hezekiah, Jacob, Eve, Seth, Samuel, Jonathan, Abigail, Sarah, Hagar, Dorcas, Rebekkah, Hannah, Jael, Deborah, Esther, Noah, Moses, Joseph, Judah, Samson, Jay Leno?, and on and on.

How many times have you heard any persons suggested in the paragraph above openly and publicly declare that Jesus [or The LORD] is their Savior and Lord and Master who they love, and more-or-less behaved or behave like they believed or believe that?

We should not underestimate the importance of Luke, not mentioned as one of The Twelve Apostles [neither is Nathaniel], per:

Matthew 10:2 The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
10:3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;
10:4 Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him.

Mark 3:14 And He appointed twelve, to be with Him, and to be sent out to preach
3:15 and have authority to throw out demons:
3:16 Simon whom He surnamed Peter;
3:17 James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, whom He surnamed Boanerges, that is, sons of thunder [almost sounds American-Indian-like];
3:18 Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean,
3:19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him.

Luke 6:13 And when it was day, He called His disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom He named apostles;
6:14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew,
6:15 and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot,
6:16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

Acts 1:13 and when they had entered, they went up to the upper room, where they were staying, Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot and Judas the son of James.

So, what happened to Nathanael?

John 1:45 Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found Him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the [Roman-legality-titled] son of Joseph."
John 1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of Him, "Hey, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!"
John 1:49 Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
20:30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book;
20:31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, The Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

Not much is known about Luke according to the New Testament record, as to his Jewish or Greek or Roman or combo geneology:

Colossians 4:14 Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
Second Timothy 4:11 Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you; for he is very useful in serving me.
Philemon 1:24 and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers.

What also is known is that Luke had close written contact with Theophilus:

Luke 1:3 it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,
Acts 1:1 In the first book, Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach... ...which Theophilus was perhaps a very-influencial Greco-Roman government official and/or highly-esteemed-and-trusted media compiler and magnate (the Google of his time throughout the Roman Empire?) likely responsible - in large part - for all New Testament books being written and distributed and disseminated in Greek rather than Latin or Hebrew. [Jerome produced the Latin Vulgate many many decades later].

In stark contrast, who perhaps or even probably are pseudo-"christian" judaizers, doctrines distorters, apocryphizers . . . somewhat influenced for good by Christians but generally revealing their basic desire to rebel, defy God, be their own god, and despise, rather than embrace, doctrinal morality?

Ask yourself:

- "Do the following have a plainly-evident responsively-friendly (though not pushy or legalistic) verbal or written testimony for Jesus?"
- Is the following Bible verse honestly and actually displayed by them in non-feigned sincerity:

First Peter 1:22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere love of the brethren, love one another earnestly from the heart.

- "Are they instead simply heartless and insensitive Old-Testament-law and/or jewish-traditions legalists?"
- "Do they doubtfully question and revile the use of, or instead forthrightly and properly apply, Scriptural proof-texts to issues of morality?"
- "Is 'tolerance' more important to them than consistent and non-compromising moral obedience and courageous proclamation of absolute black-and-white moral directives?"
- "Do they support a truly and accurate Biblical take on issues of morality and immorality, expressing outright righteous hostility and non-compromising hatred against gospel-for-gain greedy, drunkards (calling them for what they is) and addicted (not blaming the substance but instead the person), occultic, those presuming brownie-points-accumulation self-redemption by their religiously self-righteous promotion of racist reparations and racial-preferencing quotas, infidel heretics, anti-authority-respect maliciously hateful and murderers, vandals, liars, antisemitic, selfishly impatient, caustic-condemnatory judgmentalists accusing the moral of "myopic preoccupation with trifles" or "being nitpicky about" or "obsessed with" or "hung up with" or "stuck with harping on" details of morality, biased close-minded, those who slander what is truly sacred, and any even partial deviance of wayward rebels and defiant concerning sexually-oriented issues like feminist sexism, homosexuality, evolution, abortion, public immodesty (especially during warm weather), imposers and tolerators of improper public mopheaded female hairstyles wherever and whenever, porno-supportive of all types and degrees of media obscenity?"
- "Do they love to quote from the Bible and rightly apply it to practical situations and scenarios, rather than retorting that "it does not apply" or is "irrelevant" or remark that "Enough! I don't want to hear about it nor listen to that anymore," or mindlessly read Bible passages when obligated to or for whatever devious purposes?" Even the Devil can read from and quote the Bible.
- "Are they eagerly-proselytizing missionaries for the Jesus they profess non-ashamed allegiance to?
- "Do they espouse the cross-of-Christ-despising wimpy-coward-escapist presumptive myth of an alleged never-never-land, pie-in-the-sky-by-and-by, we'll-be-snatched-instead-of-dying, pre-Tribulation Rapture?"

More often than not, have the persons named below displayed "fruits of the Spirit?"

Galatians 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are plain: fornication, impurity [modeling for and producing porn], licentiousness [immodesty misdressing],
20 idolatry [retaining and disseminating porn], sorcery [Harry Potter, astrology, or The Force], enmity [divorce], strife [brawls], jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit,
21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law.
24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the [sin-acquiesing] flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
26 Let us have no self-conceit, no provoking of one another, no envy of one another.

Consider names such as:

Anti-Christian-orthodoxy Rock Hudson?, self-confident-drunkard Dean Martin?, obscene-wit Johnny Carson?, irritably-explosive-and-sarcastic "honeymooner" Jackie Gleason?, heretics Martin Marty?, Mark Hanson & Elizabeth Eaton and Chilstrom?, Kathleen Jeffords?, avowed-lesbian NIV-editor Virginia Mollenkott?, Harvey Milk, communist-atheists Karl Marx, atheistic Lenin and Stalin?, antisemitic Hitler?, Goering?, Goebbels?, Himmler?, Amin, false-prophet Barack Hussein Obama?, blasphemers Bill Maher and Mike Malloy?, Bob Hope?, Walter Cronkite?, insurrectionist-subversives Dan Rather?, goofmouth Chris Matthews?, faux-religious Lawrence O'Donnell?, lesbo-twit Rachel Maddow?, pro-queer Anderson Cooper?, Joyce BeHar?, anti-gun homo-patsy Piers Morgan?, GOP-hater Keith Olbermann?, feminist-sexist Kagan and Stevens and Sotomayor and Ginsburg?, obstructionists Clintons and Jimmy Carter?, Dick Durbin?, constipated-mindset Harry Reid?, rigidly-loveless Patty Murray?, Diane Feinstein?, Keith Ellison?, Mark Dayton?, infidel-money-supplier George Soros?, heteroperverts Hugh Hefner?, Bob Guccione, Larry Flynt?, Randall Tigue?, vulgar-comedian George Carlin?, suicidal Socrates and Hemingway and Norman Mailer, anti-creationist Pat Robertson and prosperity-for-happiness Joel Osteen?, reality-denying Kathleen Sebelius and contemptuous Lois Lerner?, Eric Holder?, Rahm Emmanuel?, evolutionists Darwin and Sagan, John Glenn?, threatener Stephanie Horn, abortions-legalizer Margaret Sanger, pre-Tribbers Thomas Ice and Tim LaHaye and John Valvarood and Matt Morrell and Kevin Bauder?, Larry Walhalla?, Athaliah, Jezebel, Saul, Haman, Agag, Goliath, no-Jesus-testimony Chris and proud David and often-mopheaded Emily and Elizabeth and Sharilyn Andersons?, materialist Beth Sarset?, traitor Judas Iscariot, Demas?, antisemitic Texe Marrs?, Sanballot, Nabal, Tobiah, Hananiah, Cain, Esau, Ahab, Alex the Coppersmith, Herod, Hadrian, cultic-catholic Bart Ryan?, Caligula, Nero, Atta, Arafat, land-for-peace Shamir or Peres?, hate-Israel Abbas and Saddam, Khrushchev?, Mao, Gandhi, Luciano and Genovese?, Gotti?, Lynette Kahn?, John Lennon, cute-slut-model Marilyn Monroe, bomber McVey, assassinators John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald, cop-hater Dillinger, Bloody Mary, Nancy Pelosi?, Maxine Waters?, Waxman?, Chris van Holland?, Chuck Schumer?, anti-God Madame Blatavsky, Rasputin, Gurdijiev, corrupt-Greek-text-concocters Westcott and Hort and Nestle and NIV promoter Kohlenberg?, heretic Marcion, anti-St-Paul Tertullus, racist-reparationists Marty L King, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, cultic-genocidist Jim Jones, bloody Bela Lugosi, homogay George "Sulu" Takei, and many more names could be suggested as to suspects not innocent until absolutely proven guilty.

Romans 10:9 ...if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

How many times (if ever) have you heard any persons suggested in the paragraph above openly and publicly declare that Jesus is their Savior and Lord and Master who they love?

And who exactly "believes in their heart" that God raised Jesus back to life? How can we tell who does that?

Matthew 12:37 "...for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

Second 1:9 Any one who goes ahead and does not reside in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he/she who resides in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son.
Second 1:10 If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive them into the house or give him-or-her any greeting;
Second 1:11 for he who greets him/her shares his-or-her wicked work.

How many of those (if any) mentioned in the above paragraph have observably and reliably and obviously stayed "in the [total and complete] doctrine of Christ" (and all that that includes)?

Revelation 1:2 [John] bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw.

More indication of who's who, and what their apparent eternity destiny was or is or will be:

First John 3:10 By this it may be seen who are the children of God, and who are the children of the Devil: whoever does not do right is not of God, nor he who does not love his [or her] brother [or sister].
3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love resides in death.
4:8 He/She who does not love does not know God; for God is love.
4:20 If any one says, "I love God," and hates his [or her] brother, he/she is a liar; for he-or-she who does not love his-or-her brother whom he-or-she has seen, cannot love God whom he-or-she has not seen.

And further indication of who's headed for Heaven compared to who's headed for Hell, is defined by who HATES who, and for what cause:

Deuteronomy 33:11 "Bless, Oh LORD, his substance, and accept the work of his hands; crush the loins of his adversaries, of those that hate him, that they rise not again."

Second Samuel 19:4 The king covered his face, and [King David] cried with a loud voice, "Oh my son Absalom, Oh Absalom, my son, my son!"
19:5 Then Joab came into the house to the king, and said, "You have today covered with shame the faces of all your servants, who have this day saved your life, and the lives of your sons and your daughters, and the lives of your wives and your concubines,
19:6 because you love those who hate you and hate those who love you. For you have made it clear today that commanders and servants are nothing to you; for today I perceive that if Absalom were alive and all of us were dead today, then you would be pleased.
19:7 Now therefore get up, go out and speak kindly to your servants; for I swear by the LORD, if you do not go, not a man will stay with you this night; and this will be worse for you than all the evil that has come upon you from your youth until now."

Second Chronicles 19:2 But Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to King Jehoshaphat, "Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, wrath has gone out against you from the LORD."

Psalm 26:5 I hate the company of evildoers, and I will not sit with the wicked.
34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked; and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
97:10 The LORD loves those who hate evil; He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
101:3 I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cleave to me.
119:104 Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
119:113 I hate double-minded persons, but I love your law.
119:128 Therefore I direct my steps by all your precepts; I hate every false way.
119:163 I hate and abhor falsehood, but I love your law.
120:6 Too long have I had my residence among those who hate peace.
129:5 May all who hate Zion be put to shame and turned backward!
139:21 Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?
139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I consider them my enemies.

Ecclesiastes 3:8 [there is] a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.

Jeremiah 12:8 My heritage has become to me like a lion in the forest, she has lifted up her voice against me; therefore I hate her.

Luke 14:26 "If any one comes to me and does not hate [yes: hate!] his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple."

Matthew 15:4 For God commanded, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die.'
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love [yes: love!] your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her
Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

Contradictions? HELL no. Paradoxes? Hell, yes! Do 'em all. Whenever appropriate. "Situation ethics" - but guided by The Holy Spirit.

May the reader re-examine the Scriptural basis previously stated for basing evaluations and categorization of both the suggested names of the righteous and the suggested names of the wicked, mentioned above.

The anti-immorality and anti-thievery aspects and enforcement of islamic-fundamentalist sharia law are an understandable and necessary substitute against those who do not take the Torah seriously nor literally.
